Novak Djokovic has nearly certainly been ruled out of the 2017 US Open, according to his Davis Cup doctor Zdenko Milikovic.

The 30-year-old has been struggling with a long-term elbow problem, which forced him to retire in the quarter finals at Wimbledon.

Novak Djokovic looks set to miss the US Open due to his ongoing elbow injury after the Tennis Federation of Serbia's doctor instructed him to rest for "six to 12 weeks".
